      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Electrical problem

Recommended Posts

I hate electrical problems. I have a 2000 GMC Jimmy. Whenever I start my truck the flasher sounds like I have the signal lights on. It stops when I apply the brakes. The 4 ways and signals all work just fine. There is no dimming of the lights at all when the thing is flashing on it's own. There is nothing wrong at all except the dam flasher will not stop clicking. It seems to have started after I used the 4 ways yesterday. Anyone have any hints on where to start on that one? Thanks././jimbo

If I remember right it is the turn signal switch that is bad. There is something about it grounding a white wire from the flasher. Since the switch is in the neutral position the turn signals don't flash but since the wire is grounded the flasher thinks it is in either the right or left position or the four ways are on. It is a fairly common problem with the blasers/jimmy's!

Unfortunately Airjer is right Jimbo, it is the switch. I've had some success actually repairing them instead of replacing them on some other models that are similar, but never on the Jimmy yet. Its not gonna hurt anything to let it go a bit if it doesn't drive you nuts. But, if you decide to replace it, let me know before you buy one, I can possibly save you some bucks.

I have the wheel puller and such that I can do it but what do I need to be cautious of as far as the air bag? Would not want that to operate. Thanks for all your help.... I think... now I have MROE work to do! It is driving me nuts!././Jimbo

I don't think you have to remove the steering wheel. This is a combination switch which will include the high/low beam switch, Wiper functions, cruise control, as well as the turn signals. Once you remove the plastic covers there are a couple of screws that secure it to the column.
